Total Eclipse of the Sun 2 July 2019

By Michael Bryce

The total eclipse of the Sun on 2 July 2019 was fantastic. I joined the expedition by Omega Holidays with Sky at Night Presenter Pete Lawrence. I took the following images with a Nikon D5500 camera and a Tamron 500 mm lens and Baarder film filter. On a tripod mount. Unfortunately I did not get the focus right on the camera.
